Hi there, I'm Marisa from Texas. I first heard about Sitesell in 2005. Thought it was too expensive, and preferred to DIY my way around things. Never was able to get a good website going, but have spent the last three years selling shirts on Etsy. My husband and I have a local screen printing business. Etsy shop did pretty well, I did over $66,000 in sales but it was super stressful and lots of hard, messy work. I closed my shop this month after a nice holiday sales season and am ready to try creating a content site like I wanted to do 12 years ago! I have lots of ideas and interests so I'm looking forward to learning along with you all!

Hi Marissa,

What I really love about your story is the experience you bring. It has a similar resonance to this post from Jeff; as well.

Welcome! Etsy comes up quite often in the forums (here's a sample: search.php?keywords=etsy) so you may bring a wealth of knowledge which will also be invaluable.

But basically. Action Guide, Action Guide and Action Guide...that is the way for now...

Welcome Marissa!

Congratulations with your previous work!

Paul's got the best advice. Do concentrate on learning what the Action Guide has for now. You can watch it all the way through once to get an idea of what you'll be doing. Take notes. Then open the AG in one window with Site Central in another to "do" the steps in the Action Guide. Some steps can take a minute to watch and then hours to "do", so give yourself time and keep taking notes.

Have a great weekend and a happy new year!

Hi Marissa,

Welcome to SBI! and to the forums, and Congratulations on your business success so far! I'd only add to Paul and Mary's advice about the Action Guide that, any time you're stuck, unsure, or just want to vent (or to share more success!) some here to the forums. It is the best place for friendly people and good advice.

I look forward to seeing you around the forums.

Kind regards
